The Saturday death of a 55-year-old man who was shot in July, 2011 on the South Side has been ruled a homicide.
Reginald Thomas was sitting in a car with a 57-year-old woman about 12:30 a.m. July 11 in the 7200 block of South Dobson Avenue in the Grand Crossing neighborhood when another car pulled up and someone inside fired shots at them, hitting both in the head.
Police News Affairs Officer Veejay Zala said the shooting occurred in 2011.
The shooter's car fled and Thomas was initially taken in critical condition to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County while the woman's condition had stabilized that day, according to Sullivan.
Thomas was pronounced dead at 1:04 p.m. Saturday at Gottlieb Memorial Hospital in Melrose Park.
An autopsy performed Sunday for Thomas, of the 7700 block of West Grand Avenue in west suburban Elmwood Park, a nursing home where he'd been since the shooting, determined he died of complications from a gunshot wound and his death was ruled a homicide
